Hello,

I have moved house, and my system is "G61R (nonSL), HD621, DSP6000s 96k, DSP5000C 96k, DSP5500s 96k". Inputs are FOXTEL, TELSTRA, Oppo, and an APPLE TV.

Can someone please help with the typing of the speakers, and connectivity and setup of the sources to the HD621 -> G61R? Happy to send a bottle of wine to whoever helps me succeed!

I have a PC with correct cables to setup the system. I have the latest firmware for each Meridian. So, it's just setup info that I need.

One last question - my TV is a 4k LG - and it doesn't support HDMI output - should I connect the TV's optical direct to the G61R, or should I buy an optical to HDMI converter?

Thank you in advance!

John

When you say moved , has the system been setup previously or are you starting from scratch? I could email you a config that should get you most of the way there if that helps.

To Answer your LG question.

Since you have an HD621 you'll get all sound from External HDMI devices through the HD621.

If you plan to use the built in Netflix etc., in the TV, yes, just hook the Optical Out from the TV direct to G61R.

Speakers should be all Type 6.


- Fiddler (IMHO)

If you think listening to music is fun, try learning an instrument.

Hello

Thank you for your help! I can give you detailed information about each source if that helps - plus would need some advice on wiring the system together. I lost the documentation!

Regards
John

The sources I have are as follows:-


Oppo BDP 93D
FOXTEL IQ3
Apple TV
Telstra TV (set top box) 4200TL

If you send me an email address to you - I will send you what I think is a starting MConfig file (although it's either not correct - or my wiring is wrong!

The TV is an LG 60F77QT
